fixed blocks.fb creation bug by making result of create-file readable.

    1: This is the current state (alpha) of gforth. This is not a
    2: distribution for the general public, since it is not yet mature
    3: enough. There is no warranty of any kind; this program is
    4: distributed under the GNU General Public license (see COPYING).
    5: 
    6: Read INSTALL for installation instructions. Mail us if you have
    7: problems.
    8: 
    9: To start the system just say `gforth'. This gives you a pretty barren
   10: system. `gforth startup.fs' gives you most ANSI wordsets. If you miss
   11: a word, just grep for it in *.fs.
   12: 
   13: If you want to work on gforth, mail me. Tasks to be done can be found
   14: in ToDo; but if you would like to do something not mentioned there,
   15: it's ok, too. In any case, we would like to hear what you are
   16: doing. The most important tasks IMO are the missing ANS Forth words
   17: (musts before the alpha release), the documentation and the foreign
   18: language interface for C.
   19: 
   20: On popular request, here are the meanings of unusual file extensions:
   21: 
   22: *.fs	Forth stream source file
   23: *.fi	Forth image files
   24: *.fb	Forth blocks file
   25: *.i	C include files
   26: *.ds	documenation source
   27: *TAGS	etags files
